SECTION III: ACKNOWLEDGMENT & SIGNATURE OF APPLICANT
I acknowledge that this is a deferment of, not an exemption from, the property taxes that will be due while I am deployed/the
serviceperson is deployed for active service in time of war. I also acknowledge that all property taxes that accrue while I am deployed/
the service person is deployed will become due in full, without interest, during a 90-day “grace period” following the last date of
deployment. I further acknowledge that any property tax amount not paid during the 90-day “grace period” following the end date of
deployment will be charged interest at the rate it would have accrued since the original property tax due date. I acknowledge that this
deferment only applies to property taxes that will be due during the period of deployment, and does not affect prior delinquencies
existing at the time of deployment or payments due before the start of the deployment. Finally, I acknowledge that this deferral only
applies to the property tax portion of the bill, and not to any utility payments made to the municipality.
